Collective Bargaining in Social Work

By Bernard Segal

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, December 1945

The author, speaking at a meeting of the National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare on June 5, 1945, and representing the Social Service Employees' Union, reviews special issues related to collective bargaining in the context of social work and other social services agencies. He argues that the key problem is salaries for all categories of social agency workers, which he notes are low compared both to private industry and to civil service. Raising social service worker salaries would be good for agency employees, good for agency clients, and good for society as a whole, the author contends.
